Aug.8th is my date/Bbl Dr. Campos!!!!! - Tijuana, Mexico

Hello all my bbl sistas! We I have been so amazed...

Hello all my bbl sistas! We I have been so amazed at the results and reviews on this site. They have helped me so much in my journey so far tht I decided I have to be a testimony for other future women. I've always disliked the shape of my midsection and buttocks. I have hips but thts only from them spreading due to my pregnancies. I'm 5'6 1/2....and 156bls. I've been concidering this procedure for like 5 years now after my second child. But put it off cause we were not sure if we were done having babies. Well 3 yrs and one last baby later I'm sterile now and ready for a new better me, yay!!! I originally was considering 3 docs who I know could give me the results I'm seeking. Dr. Salama was my second choice my first was. A doc in texas but wasn't. impressed after further reserch. But then I came across the amazing curvacious work. of of Dr. Jaime Campos Leon, all of my extensive research and before and after photos sealded the deal for me! So in jan I began my planning! I'm so excited!

Ok, so I received my estimate from Dr. Campos via email on Feb.2nd......I am getting lipo to my abdomen, waist, and back. I really am hoping to get 900-1000ccs given that my body can absorbe 20-40% of fat. I made my deposite of $500 on 2/22. Angie akready booked and reserved my sx date for me. But they give you a week to make your deposite. I also researched recovery houses and fell in love with club med! :) marvin is so nice. He has answered all of my questions so far and been so helpful! I can't begin to tell you how many times I went over and over in my head why I shouldnt have my sx in mexico! Am I crazy!?! Lol....but every doubt I had something would happen like I would get pics or an email from Marvin, or I would read some grear review on here about my doc. Then there were days when I researched Dr campos to find a reason not to go, but would find nothing but good things, and awesome beforeandafters!!!! So I asked my husband if he thought I was crazy lol, he said you have it all planned out, youve done the research, and you just finished med school I know you wouldnt let anyone do sx on you if you did

A quick update!:) I called clubmed because marvin so kindly suggested I speak to one of the girls staying the solo to ease my nervous jitters about traveling alone and the whole sx process. I spoke to a sweet educated woman who kept it very 100! She told me she just had sx on friday, a bbl and breast implants. She said she would not recommend I stay anywhere else but clubmed. She said when she arrived she called to let marvin know where to pick her up and he was there within 3min! She went on to tell me it took only ruffly 15 to arrive at the beachhouse. She said she awakes to a beaautiful view and sound of the ocean but that the only downside to it all I'd the psin that she has two kids and it felt like she had another!!..omg..guess I gotta prepare mentally for real! She ressurred me that I would be in great care and that I picked the right after care home. I wished her well and said alil prayer for her after we got off the line. Wow, I feel alot better!

Ok ladies I have been wrecking my brain the last two months, but this goes to show no matter how much you plan things,they don't always go as planned. I received an email from angie stating that dr.c will be out of town for a plastic surgery convention the week I'm scheduled and tht I have to reschedule my sx date!!!!!! Talk about pissed! I was freaking I have everything booked and paid club med, nonrefundable plane ticket evrything! For the inconvience they gave me a $150 discount. But to change my flight they charged me $150 and the difference of the ticket. $88 bucks extra! Now my date is the 8th of aug. An extra week to wait. But I'm tryna see the blessing in the mess. Marvvin at clubmed is sooo sweet and caring! He told me not to worrie cause he will hold a place for me reguardless.he also said he can hear in my voice how stressed I am about all this and he recommended I check flights with a day or two extra tht the price may be better to save money. Then I asked how much extra I would have to pay for a day or two and he said you don't even worry just find the best deal on your flight and ill take care of the rest! He is sooo awesome! And now I know without a doubt tht I picked the very best ppl to care for me during my recovery! They really care its not all about money money money! And I love tht! I'm in good hands and marvin also said since I'm coming a day early tht he will take me shopping with some of the girls and out to really enjoy the beach! Yay! Can't wait truly a mini vacation and mommy makeova! Thank God the mess is resolved and I'm all set...again...


You are welcome. I try to give a little shout out of support with congrats but I haven't had a lot of time to get on here lately. I'm excited for you and hope you get the results you are looking for. I wish I could afford to get mine done before now but I'm paying out of pocket. I'm pretty sure both of our times will fly by. I have heard good thing about Campos so you will be fine. I was going to go to him but I would have had to get the surgery in 6 months after the deposit is paid and that's not enough time for me to pay. Anyway, talk to you soon.

@afianewme.........hey hunny and congrats on upcmn surgery! I must tell u tht no matter where ur doc is u must research him like u would research any surgeon, because thru extensive research and also talkin to previous patients of ur doc, u will get the decision down to the perfect doc to fit ur needs. Safety is always first...u.s. or mexico or dominican republic...doesn't matter the location there are amazing docs all over the world!. I picked my doc based on education, experience, his style of sculpting women and his staff. It so happens he is located in tijuana us doc could give me wht drr campos can! Oh and Never. choose based on price....tht just actually happened to be a plus and very much within the budget I wanted to have. My advice is research, research, research!!! Then ur choice should be easy! Hope this helps wish u all thhe best!

Hey all! So I'm on excitemode again! I. Just talked to my sx coordinator, Angie and wanted to see if dr campos had an opening for me to get a consult the day before my sx instead of the day of. She checked the schedule and he has an opening at 5pm aug 7th! Yay! She said that would be great for me that way I cn ask all my last minute questions, go over instructions and get my paperwork all signed the day before sx. Then ill be there bright and early the next morning ready to go in!!! I think this will really help put my mind at ease and it'll be nice not to have to deal with any paperwork right before going in.....I'm happy;)


Awww me too hun! But we can still do this as a support team to one another becuz are dates are so close! Yay.....! Singing MJ's "you are not alone". Lol! But thank you are delirious cause I thought I was alone obsessing over my body...I was searching wishpics when you messaged me! Lol its crazy! And driving me crazy! I even went into hiding away frm fam, friends and mirrors! I just hate my pancake booty and cnt stand looking at it knowing its gonna be transformed in a few months. The time is soooo not flying by!!!! :(

My current dilemma, THIS IS THE WORLD WIDE WEB!!!
To post before and afters or not to post before and afters?
Tht is the question! Lol
But on a serious note, I feel this obigation to post them because other reviews
And photos have helped me so much in my final decision makingfor sx. And I want
To contribute to that by sharing........however........
I'm very scared cause like I said its the WORLD WIDE WEB! And I know u ladies are
Saying, but u can remain anonymous in ur photos.....I kno I can probly blur my face
And tatts but idk....I'm not sayn I won't cause I really think, with campos, my results
Will be breathtaking! But ima pray on it! Wht do u ladies think, overall?
Till next update.....;)


Well the thing is its like waiting inline....who knows how many emails are in front of the one you just sent. I really don't think calling will speed up the process. In my experience after the first week I sent another email to see if he had gotten a chance to read my email. Angie informed me that he had been very busy because he was returning from vacation at that time she reassured me he would email me with an estimate soon. I know its hard lord knows I have no patience but my advice is, be patient follow up in a week I'm sure he will get to you soon. Google dr. Jaime campos leon his website should pull up, sorry dnt know it by heart, but he has a lot on there and also on here and a site called this helps!

Oops almost forgot to ask where is the best place to see tons of before and after pics of his work ???

@whenwhen do they really take two weeks to response once you submit your photos ? I wonder if calling will push along the process because I want to book a date ASAP. It's between two doctors right now and they are both very popular I wanna make sure to get a date before the end of this year. :-)

Quick update ladies! I decided I'm going to do a seven day cleanse. I'm goint to continue to tone my arms and legs the next five weeks and also start iron and vitamin c along with my womens one a day. Then at the end of these five weeks (july1) I will do the clense. My labs will be done the following week, july 9th....then three short weeks later...a new me! Its kinda sad tho I feel like I can't enjoy the summer cause I'm physically and mentally prepping for sx. Also I'm still in hidding until the big reveal! This is a first for me to say but SUMMER PLZ FLY BY! I only look forward for next summer when I can for the first time in my life wear a two piece bikini with the upmost my name says soon I hope!;)


Hey lime, uugggg its hard when u hear a docs recommendation and its not wht u want nor wht u feel u need(happened to me before with another doc) I would send an email and ask if u could set up a ph call with dr campos to personally discuss this further. Good luck hun
  • Reply
So I got my quote from dr campos, and now I'm a little thrown off because one of his recommendation was a tummy tuck and then lipo and fat grafting. It's out dangerous to recommend a tummy tuck to me because my stomach is not that big nor do I have enough skin there for a tummy tuck. So now I'm a lil confused !!! So ladies what is the best way to approach this because I know Im right there's no way a tummy tuck is needed!!! Should I call the office and talks to them personally or email or maybe just go with dr. Salama in Miami which is more money :-( but his consult mentioned no tummy tuck !!!!

Hey y'all! I finally purchased a measuring tape to get my current size...36-30-38...its funny I only knew my bra size, never measured my waist and hips this is now proof I have no waist and big hips :(.... I think my goal size would be 36-25-44( but tht 44 is including my newbooty in my mind, so idk if tht number would mean bigger hips?? But I def do not want bigger hips...I just want a tinitiny waist and big bubble booty to go with my thick thighs and hips. We will soon see! Countdown says 68 days left!


Lol Im going to the beach enjoying myself, and wearing a bathing suit which I dont usually do. My confidence is already boosting. I've gained weight, and look a bit unporportioned but dont care all I'm thinking about is how imma look at the end of August. I cant wait for that hourglass! ;)
  • Reply my surgery coordinator Angie and ask her for contact infor and the best way to get started with the whole process. It may take her alittle time to respond but she should be able to help you with everything! Her email is this helps and best wishes hunny

Hello out there my bbl ladies! Well I just had my labs done this morning and hopefully they will be back buy Friday so I can mail myresults to dr campos....I hope all is well and I have a clean bill of health for sx! I must say its weird my excitement has died down a lot I don't know if its because of the recent review updates and some of my bbl sisters having complications or if its just because I've been waiting so long...:/ but nehoo I'm 28 days away til (hopefully ;)) my lil waist and big bootay! My bag is packed I have everything done now and ready to go officially....come on aug 8th! Best wishes to all going before me! Nest time I update I hope to be on the plane!! ;)


@blanche hey hunny! Well thts great news to hear about m.m. I hope all tht is true and she's doing well! I'm sure tht helps put ur mind at ease too! Make sure u keep me posted on ur progress, I had my labs done Monday and just got my results yay! Have u finished up everything yet?!
  • Reply
To be honest I havent done a thing, I dont know what im supposed to do? Im gonna book my appt. today or tomorrow
Thanks so much for taking the time to tell me that. I did hear about m.m., however I don't think i am at risk high risk for blood clots. My sister is a nurse and she told me that blood clots always begin in the legs and travel to the lungs- not sure if that's true or not. But I will probably wear compression things on my legs just incase. Also, I took this assessment: and it looks like I score 3 points which isn't too bad according to

I suggest checking out those links!

My biggest worry is that he's going to screw up my boobs and leave me all wrinkled. I've been looking at pics of girls who have had lipo to their stomachs and they seem to all look wrinkled (not just his patients, but all). Granted, I have done zero research on lipo, so maybe that stuff goes away!

Hi everybody! Great news! I just got my confirmation email from Angie about my labs. Everything looks perfect and I'm good to go! Yay! Also today I'm 20 days away....I must say tht even though I'm close its still seems far away...dunno but so happy everything is done officially! I knew my labs would come back ok, cuz I'm a nurse and I know how to read them, but didn't know wht requirements I had to meet to get clearance for sx. But now I know! I was so happy when I read tht email this mornin. :) come on Aug. 7th I'm ready to go! Its been a stressful month for me and because of my fam I never have alone time to myself. I know ill probly miss my hubby and kiddos like crazy but I'm going alone, :( I think it'll be a good breather for a mini vacation but with some aches and pains..and a brand new booty! next update!

Haha!,so now I can update! Im 2 1/2months postop. Still not 100% normal. I still have swelling in my stomach and lower back. :( gosh Idk whats worse swelling or the weird feeling where I got lipo...:/....recovery is a breast! :( dont mean to scare neone but I have to be truthful. My (totally unexpected) tt incision is healing nice and my new belly button is to. My husband loves my ass! Lol it jiggled from day one it was never hard very bruised though. Bruises all gone now. I swell up more if im not wrapped up tight. Oh I wrap my waist in ace bandages then put my garment ontop of that. Itd alot but with swelling I have a 27" waist ;). The tighter the better just make sure you can breath,lol! I got 1020ccs each cheek and fatgraph to hips dony know how many ccs. Lipo to lower back and waist. With that dreaded tt! So much PAIN!!!!! I could handle the bbl but that damn tt in combination with that damn drain...omgosh nevet again. I do think my butt could have more ccs for fullness on the bittom. My bff and husband think im crazy but im just nit 100% happy. And its not campos fault, I blame me! I was so histarical and upset crying aboit tht tt I didnt focus on what I wanted to tell him for the bbl. But he gave me a beautifully sculpted hourglass shape and flat tummy with a round jiggly booty!,and if thats what he did on his on I cnt imagine what he could do with me discribing my wants!!! maybe round two we will see how the healing and fluffing go! Dresses are amazing on me now and are my favorite thing to wear! All if my stretchmarks ar gone!, and do is tht thick c section scar from my babies. He really did a great job! Ask me anything ladies and best wishes to you all!


Im so excited mine is in Feb 2015 how was your experience at clubmed and what was the cost per day?
